If a fire were to start in your home while you are sleeping, would you be aware of it? If you don’t have smoke detectors in your home, or worse, if you have smoke detectors in your home where the batteries have been removed, you might not wake up in time to escape to safety. With smoke detectors being so cheap, it is really tragic whenever there is a report of a family being caught by surprise by a fire.

To keep you and your family safe, you should have a smoke alarm on every floor of your home, as well as, one outside of every bedroom and near any flammable materials that you might have in your home.

Take the time to check their functionality with regular intervals so that you can be confident that they will go off when they need to. If your alarm starts to beep due to having low battery, don’t take the battery out until you have a fresh one to replace it with.
